News

Hey deltason,

Personally I use Barron's because it's linked to MarketWatch. But.... you can use Forex Factory also.

Charts trade profitably?


Deltason,

No chart will ever enable you to trade profitably. Only years of experience will accomplish that. Personally I think money management skills are the most important aspect of trading. Knowing what your risk/reward ratio is..... knowing your winning %, knowing if your set ups really have an "edge" or not.....

My "All you Need" template may work for me but may not work for you. Everyone is different and preceives things in a different way. If it works for you great! If it doesn't find something that you can relate to.

Jeff

To get the economics news from Barrons..... select the "Data and Tools" tab.... then select economic data. That will show you all the news announcements for the week and gives the market moving possibility with a stars.

Your advice is very good. I'm curious how long you've been trading this strategy? The eco bars are relatively new to me so I'm curious if this is a recent addition for you and what you were doing before?

Eco bars

Hey Cunparis,

The various incarnations of paint bar studies for me started when I was using TradeStation. I purchased the Paintbar Factory indicators and they had a paintbar study that I really liked. When I went back to Ninja Trader the only thing I could find that approximated the Paintbar Factory candle stick study was called ModHeikenAshi. I found it in the Ninja Forum. I believe that a trader named Gumphrie posted it. I would use it with a setting of 2. Then..... when I found the Big Mike Forum I noticed the EcoBars and found that it was similiar to the PaintBar Factory Study in that it provided the Yellow (loss of momentum) candles which indicate a possible direction change. Another feature I like about the Eco Bars is the "fading" option and the choice of color. I find that there is an enormous amount of information contained in candlestick studies. Plus being able to obtain this information by just looking at the price action and not some lagging osillator is a real benefit. (keeps me focused on price)

As far as "how long I've been trading this strategy" This is just the latest template that I've created to aid me in my quest to read price action. I could show you a dozen different templates that essentially do the same thing. At the end of the day, price action is price action. What ever helps to discern price action is good !!! One of the most helpful things that I've done is to put daily pivots on my anchor chart. Also, the current day high/low. The first question I ask myself is "are we trading above or below the daily pivot?" The next question is " is there a gap and does it look like we might fill it?" Price is continuously testing support and resistance. These are the most interesting places to pay close attention. ( I use CMIPivotsDailyDashV7 downloaded on the Ninja forum)

Hope that answers your question,

Jeff

Hey Cunparis,
The various incarnations of paint bar studies for me started when I was using TradeStation.

It's funny you mention Tradestation, that's what I use for my trading. In fact I ported HMA to tradestation and was working on the EMA colors indicator and I ran into a problem (I don't know how to set a previous value of a variable (in the past), it's possible with NT but I don't know how in TS) so I'm not sure I can port this one. I was hoping to sim your strategy in tradestation so that I don't have to switch back and fourth. I agree about paintbars, I use a volume paintbar and it's great. I agree about candlesticks as well.

I took a few trades today on the simulator. I took two trades. If you have time, could you comment on the two trades and share what you did (or didn't do)? The examples you posted previously all looked pretty obvious, today looked a lot more difficult.

I also noticed the HMA is pretty good at catching the turns, it doesn't change colors often. I trade ES with 699 tick chart and I noticed that using the HMA(14) on my higher timeframe (2097) was good at picking direction and on the 699 I could see the pullbacks better with the HMA. I might be able to work a trade like this into my current system (as long as it wouldn't be against my current setup). I don't have many trades per day so I have lots of time in between trades and sometimes the trades last a while so I could even get another trade inside the longer one. Just brainstorming here..
